I have a Dell 1400 which I rebuilt.I have installed Windows 2000 Advanced Server on it. All the hardware, memory, drives, etc check out . It sorks great except now I am trying to upgrade to Active Directory. When I start the DCPROMO process I get the screens about new AD, new forest, etc… Then I click and get to the point where is is asking for the nake of the new domain. Before I can enter I get a pop-up the informs me that “NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM c:winntsystem32services.exe terminated unexpectedly with status code 128. System will now shutdown” 30 sec later I’ve rebooted.
